Here was my trouble. As I tried to think of what to write about my girls, it went something like this~
"Lydia is the most wonderful girl I could ever imagine. She is the sunshine of our home." "Bethany is also the most wonderful girl I could ever imagine. Come to think of it, so is Havilah. And of course Ella Joy. Esther? Yeah, most wonderful baby I could EVER imagine. And sunshine? When I think of sunshine I think of Havi. And Esther. And Bethany. And obviously Ella Joy."
Sometimes I feel like there is no way to truly convince people that we are NOT disappointed to have all girls. We say it all the time but people just don't really believe it. When I look at these faces though, I can't fathom how someone could think I would wish I had someone else instead. I think God's plans are pretty fantastic.
Life is not as pristine as it looks in these photos. As I'm writing this Ella came out of bed stripped of everything. But she came down in the arms of her big sister who was laughing hysterically at her. Remember to really see your children today. Enjoy them. Not for what they do, but for who the Lord made them to be. Be blessed! I know I am!
